Let's Dance. Clothes for Collective Life

Like in many other countries there is also in Bulgaria a tradional folklore dance, in which the dancers intervene and act as one common dance body in a circle. The altered shirts tailored together in a connected circle are a perfect dress for this body and are at the same time reminiscent of a straitjacket used to calm people down while limiting their free movement. As such the communal garment can stand as a metapher for the dystopic reality of the socialist past and communist dictatorship in the country.
